When I was offered a chance at Rootstech to interview Dennis Brimhall, Familysearch CEO, I had mixed emotions. I was thrilled to be offered this opportunity but nervous about interviewing such an important man in the world of genealogy. I had an hour or so to get ready for the interview so I pestered my fellow Official Bloggers asking them what they thought I should ask Dennis.
For most of the interviews I conducted at Rootstech I just chatted with my interviewees but this one was serious stuff so I prepared questions and saved them in Evernote on my tablet. During the interview I clutched the tablet, referred to my questions and prayed that I sounded coherent.
One of the things I asked Mr Brimhall was how we, the users of Familysearch resources, can assist the organisation. Please take a look at the video to see what he has to say.
Thank you to Paul Nauta and Rob Goates, the Rootstech PR people, for offering me the chance to interview Mr Brimhall and to Mr Brimhall for taking time out of his busy schedule to chat with me.
